    Malstrom,

    Don't apologize for your English. I hope this is only the beginning of your time here.

    We understand what you need. What country and native language? What type of organ (i.e. pipe or electronic)? Do you have a combination action available?

    Let me provide a couple of basic registrations:
    Medium Registration for Congregational Singing
    Manual II: Gedackt 8' & Flauto Minor 4'
    Manual I: Principal 8' & Octave 4' (Optional II>I Coupler)
    Pedal: Subbas 16' (Optional II>Pedal Coupler)

    Stronger Registration for Congregational Singing
    Manual II: Gedackt 8' & Flauto Minor 4' + Blockfloete 2'
    Manual I: Principal 8' & Octave 4' (Optional II>I Coupler) + Octave 2'
    Pedal: Subbas 16' + Flutebas 8' (Optional II>Pedal Coupler)

    Solo Registration for Prelude/Postlude w/Solo on Manual II
    Manual II: Gedackt 8' & Blockfloete 2' (Play solo line on this manual).
    Manual I: Bourdon 8' (Play accompaniment on this manual).
    Pedal: Subbas 16'

    Solo Registration for Prelude/Postlude w/Solo on Manual I
    Manual II: Salicional 8' (possibly Flauto minor 4'). (Play accompaniment on this manual).
    Manual I: Bourdon 8' & Sesquialtera 2⅔' (Play solo on this manual).
    Pedal: Subbas 16'

    I hope this gives you enough of a start to get through the service.

    Michael

      This is pipe organ.
      Thanks for Your propositions, but I'm looking for "more concert" regs. Maybe with reeds? I have played the organ a much time, but there was always flutes, strings and principals 8', 4'. "Sesquialtera" and reeds are new for me. I'd like to know what I can use them.
      I forgot say organ has obviously a "Tremulant".

        Reeds can be used alone as a solo, accompanied by another setting on the other manual, or to add to full organ. A Krummhorn 8' is a more Baroque sound and is usually used alone with Tremulant, while the Trumpet 8' can be brightened with an Octave 4' or a Mixture, if you have one.

        Another use for a chorus reed (like the Trumpet 8') is to cap the full organ sound. Just be careful it's not too powerful. If the organ is voiced well, it shouldn't be.

        The Sesquialtera 2⅔' is a Mutation (like Nazard 2⅔' [Flute timbre] or Quinte 2⅔' [Principal timbre]). It plays one octave plus a 5th above the note played. Sometimes it is called the Fifteenth (15th) because that is the interval it plays above the note you press. A 2' Principal stop is sometimes called a 22nd because it plays that interval above the note played.

        The Mixture is a bit more difficult to explain, but it is probably 2 ranks played at the same time. Mixtures often play 2 (or more) pipes at the same time, and the notes are separated by a 4th or 5th. A Mixture adds brilliance to the ensemble, and is often added to the registration before reeds are added.

        I hope this helps. Have fun!

            Registration not only depends on what the organ has to offer, but also on the pieces you play. You'd register differently for Bach than for Salomé etc.
            Usually guest performers get a bit of time on their own with the organ. Is this not the case? Or, if this hasn't been offered to you, could you ask? Should make things so much easier.

            If you let us know what you will play, we might be able to give some more ideas.

              For congregational singing generally. But I asked because sometimes I make longer the beginning of song in prelude style. So Sesquialtera with Bourdon... That sounds amazing.
              I'm gonna try this krummhorn with tremulant.

              Pieces I play are composed generally by Bach or G. Young.
              A lot of pieces are the transcriptions of orchestral tracks, the most often playing with "tutti". But I started play in prelude style. In the beginning it was Rohrfloete 4' as solo and Gedackt 8' as accompaniment. Later it was Rohrfloete 4' with Sesquialtera 2⅔' and Octave 2' as solo and Gedackt 8' and Salicional 8' with Subbas 16' as accompaniment.
              So, it wasn't too mastering.
              Now I'm looking for more similar combinations.

              Answer for old question: it's polish language in Poland :-)

              Edit:
              I could ask, but I don't know, how I should arrange the stops. I had no idea, so I asked here ;)

              I writed I tried Sesquialtera with rohrfloete and octave... I meant I tried this on other organ - electronic. I have never played on organ I described.
              I think it won't be the same on pipe organ in place I'm gonna play.
